For example, one component of anti-oppressive practice is critical self-reflection by social workers. Critical modern social work approaches fail to identify diversity of social worker’s abilities to reflect critically depending on context, institution (Healy, 2014, p.203), education and personal barriers. A second example of the potential contradictions within modern critical social work is that of empowerment and addressing larger structural systems. For an individual, gaining insight into the power and control that structural systems play in people’s lives can be overwhelming. For individuals facing multiple barriers on psychological, individual, familial and societal levels, facing structural barriers can further contribute to feelings of powerlessness.

The second ethical dilemma is that social work practitioners and their clients have different personal values. Despite social workers best efforts to keep their feelings in check and to respect differences, being confronted with situations in which their
Canadian health services delivery has not been sufficient in serving Aboriginal women. Practices and policies of the system has continue to marginalize many aboriginal women in the health care structure (indigenous women, 2005), this is structural violence. “Determinant of health such as gender, cultural heritage, aboriginal status is influenced by the quality and quantity of a variety of resources that a society makes available to its members” (Donna, Jessie, Susan, Buffy, 2008). Many Aboriginal women have low self-esteem (Indigenous politics, 2005), these “internal struggles” have led to many health and social related problems such as alcohol and drug abuse (YWCA Canada). In 2001 the life expectancy was 77 years for Aboriginal women (YWCA
• Victims may be afraid of getting the caregiver/abuser in trouble. • Victims may be unable to explain what happened because of the nature of their disability. What Makes Reporting Difficult for Caregivers? Taking the step to actually file a report can be difficult for many reasons: • Caregivers may be shocked, angered or embarrassed by what they hear or see. • Caregivers may be hearing information that is very contrary to their own personal standards.
By doing so, it forms a gap among the society and people with learning disabilities as indirectly it creates an assumption that these people cannot be integrated among the society. Hence, any organisation that provides assistance for people with learning disabilities should be placed in a friendly neighbourhood, among the society. This is to ensure that the society will generally be more acceptances towards people with learning disabilities and engage with them almost in everyday basis. Furthermore, this lessens the chances of not only people with learning disabilities but also other vulnerable group facing stigmatization. Thus, it will increase

Poor communication can also lead to mistrust of medical professionals as the patient may not understand what is occurring, leading to nonadherence to medical care and thus impacting on patient safety (Cuevas, A. G., O 'Brien, K., & Saha, S, 2016). What barriers to effective communication are described? Communication is effected by a mixture of variables such as an “authority gradient”, style of communication and fatigue which impacts the way information is communicated between people. These factors can form a barrier called the “authority gradient” where individuals are classified on factors such as level of education, gender or job position which determines how much control they have over a situation.
It is noticed that relationships are considered vital to the ambition of person-centred care as a solution to predictable and depersonalised attention. Moreover, this importance is centred on the understanding of the self-being shaped, at least in part, by associations with others. According to Dewing (2008) the personality has inner and outer components. In addition, the exterior or community self is that which is erected and upheld by relations with others and approaches of being comprehensible and valuable originated, at least in portion, from the exterior. However, the dearth of associations or connectedness to others might consequence in moods of aloneness and related feelings of loneliness and dejection in elder people living in domestic
For example, there is confusion as to what these terms developmental social work actually mean in practice and this has limited its application (Patel and Hochfeld, 2012). The terms social development, developmental social welfare and developmental social work are very familiar in social work hence confusing practitioners. According to a study by Patel & Hochfeld (2012) in an attempt to explain what developmental social work and social work mean, respondents idetified key concepts that influence their understanding of developmental social work such as empowerment; capacity building development; and participation. These are concepts that match established social work conventions in that they are commonly used in individual and community empowerment practice. However, other aspects of developmental social work such as high impact interventions, generalist interventions, economic development, and broad human rights promotion and advocacy, were cited less frequently by the respondents.
The disadvantages that migrant students may face in education within their receiving countries can include problems through communication, integration and negotiation. Many of these difficulties arise as a result of existing racism, language barriers, religious indifference and national ignorance to cultural variety. Migrant students may not reach their full academic potential as a result of this cumulative disadvantage (Darmody, 2011) in education. A resolution to this problem can be difficult to pin point although measures have been taken to encourage integration and racial acceptance through constitution giving equal rights to education etc. National teachers and students of the receiving country must make a conscious effort to enable migrant students full development on an academic and social level to avoid these existing
